(hopefully, he’s not too upset with me for posting this picture– but it’s too cute, i had to share!)


we celebrated AJ’s birthday a few weeks ago, and had a very fun time, in the exact room at the Green Gateau where we were engaged!

prior to the event, my sweet sister-in-law asked for ideas on what to get him for his birthday. i reminded her that we have agreed over the last few years to not get gifts for each other and focus on the kids (though we joke that AJ is one of the kids)… and then i said, “Why don’t you wrap up the breast pump and give it to him!”…. which she did.

Sweet AJ was so humbled by the beautifully wrapped package…. until he opened it.

what a good sport!
